how was the reception?
I actually didn't make it to the reception but instead visited the law school. The school has a lot of positive things about it. Facilities are nice and the way their court room is set up is really cool. They have a temporary wall that can be moved and opens up 4 of the large classrooms so they can view the court room. I don't know if that is a good description or not but if you get a chance to see it take advantage. The part of town it is in is less than desirable but I thought the campus had a segregated feel from the surrounding neighborhoods which is good. I didn't realize how far from the campus most students live. A friend of mine who attends said it takes him 20-30 minutes to get to campus from his house.
wow that is a lot longer drive than I would like to make. Got the acceptance letter in the mail today along with a 3k scholly requiring me to stay in the top 10% like everyone else thus far. I suppose that is a great way to get people to come to your school and not have to pay everyone you offer a scholarship to. Really seems like it would make things pretty competitive, especially for those receiving more significant amounts of money. What does your friend have to say about his fellow students?
Current 1L here -
I also received the 10k 10% stipulation - pretty much the norm from the students I've talked to.
As for the drive to campus - it's actually not that bad, I live on the NW side of SA and it's about 20 min drive - including traffic in the mornings on the busiest highway intersections.
Fellow Students - Everyone is pretty friendly, the campus is small, and there's not cut throat in your face competition. The professors have an open door policy and are happy to meet with students.
If you have any other questions, I'd be happy to answer!
